Friendz Bar & Grill - Statesville, NC
I had been here once before to see a friend's band play on a Saturday night. My husband & I took our son for lunch today, although I didn't eat much because I had just eaten breakfast. I had fried pickles, which I love in all incarnations. They were a bit salty; I don't think they were frozen, and it kind of tasted like there was salt in the breading which was overkill. Still good, and I would order them again. Both of the guys got bacon cheeseburgers; one standard with lettuce, tomato, mayo, and one "rodeo" which had an onion ring and BBQ sauce. I took a bite of the rodeo burger and it was good; decent meat, good bread, good BBQ sauce. (My son had taken the onion ring off - I guess he only wanted it for the sauce. He's 10.) Both burgers were cooked "well", and they weren't offered a choice. I can't remember if that is NC law or not. They both got seasoned waffle fries, which I didn't taste. We will probably go back, and I will give more opinions when I actually eat. The menu prices were reasonable, as were the beer prices (Yuenling pint draft was $2.60, and it wasn't a special or anything).
